Afternoon all.

I'm looking to buy a C270 and due to budget I'm looking at a 71k 2002 model fitted with a Valeo rad. I appreciate that this subject has been 'done to death', however I would appreciate a steer from anyone that has owned an older C270 to advise if there is anything else to look for?. Will the Valeo last the life of the car with no problems or is it very hit or miss? From the forum I note that it is often suggested to replace the Valeo with a BEHR, therefore can anyone please advise if this is a DIY, garage or Indy task and if their is a link to a site that can supply a cheap replacement? Any advise will be gratefully received.
